A level Art and Design (Fine Art) Course

What board do we do? AQA

What is Fine Art? Students studying Fine Art will be introduced to a variety of experiences exploring a range of art media, processes and techniques.  Traditional methods are studied as well as new media – the use of drawing for different purposes is studied, using a variety of methods and scales. Students will work in one or more areas of Fine Art such as drawing and painting, mixed media (collage), printmaking and photography. Relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of art, craft and design are studied, from the past and from recent times , including European and non European examples.

Trips may be taken to nearby art galleries and museums. 

Marks gained at AS level do not contribute in any way to the final grade at A level.

Which subjects combine well with Fine Art?  Photography, Physics, Maths (for Architecture students)

What can Fine Art lead to?
Many of our Fine Art students go on to Foundation courses in Art and Design, also to universities to study Architecture, Product Design and Industrial Design.   Other jobs benefitting from Fine Art  courses are  Film and TV production,  Costume and  Fashion design, Textile  and Jewellery design.  Studying Fine Art is useful for problem solving skills, self motivated working skills, and can give an invaluable insight in to the variety of cultures around the world.
